SolarDerm: Our Story

Hi, my name is Laura Mulcahy and I’m the founder of SolarDerm.

In 2016, I retired after 30 years in corporate America. I was ready for a change and starting SolarDerm was just the change I was looking for.

My husband had been involved in the green tea business since the late 90s. In 2010, he developed a green tea skin care line with a top cosmetic engineer. But at that time, he felt he didn’t have the right team in place to launch the products successfully, so he put everything on hold.

My family, friends and I started using the products he developed. We loved them so much that we used them all up. I couldn’t find anything on the market that was remotely close in quality or effectiveness to his products, so I decided to launch the products myself.

Working with the same cosmetic engineer, we improved on the formula, produced more and launched SolarDerm in 2019.

Meanwhile, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I didn’t like the lotion that the doctors recommended I use on my skin after radiation. It was thick, greasy, and hard to put on. But most importantly, it did nothing to heal my burned skin.

Radiation burns are very similar to sun burns, so I checked with my doctor to make sure it was okay and started applying SolarDerm moisturizer instead. The moisturizer calmed my skin, helped stop the peeling, and best of all, helped to actually heal my skin. The rest of my radiation treatments became much more bearable now.

My mother also used SolarDerm on her forearms after her treatments. It immediately relieved the itchiness and soothed her skin.

We have a facial moisturizer and a facial wash with more products to come. Our products are made with natural/non-toxic ingredients and are priced very reasonable compared to other high end antioxidant skin care lines.

Thank you for choosing SolarDerm. We hope you love them as much as we do!

Green Tea

Even after you’re out of the sun, the UV radiation continues to damage your skin cells for hours. This cell damage makes your skin age faster and may cause melanoma and other types of skin cancer.

Green tea contains a powerful antioxidant called EGCG that stops UV radiation from damaging cell DNA and helps prevent skin cancer.

SolarDerm products consist of 90% of EGCG, which is the highest concentration level of EGCG among other skin care products on the market.

Green tea is also full of Vitamin B2 that helps maintain the youthful skin structure and firmness, and Vitamin E that helps grow new skin cells, nourishes your skin and keeps it soft and hydrated.

Last but not least, green tea’s anti-inflammatory properties reduce irritation, redness, and swelling, and provide instant relief for your sunburned or sun sensitive skin.

Oat is another natural ingredient with rich antioxidant properties that helps undo the UV radiation damage.

Oat also helps reduce itching and inflammation, soothe sunburns, and can help calm eczema and psoriasis.

Shea Butter

Shea butter is an excellent moisturizer. It penetrates the skin without clogging the pores and creates a smooth barrier sealing in moisture that makes the moisturizing effect last for several hours.

Shea butter is also considered one of the best anti-aging agents. It’s rich in Vitamin E as well as:
